Abstract

Corruption of all types including occupational corruption causes immense damage to society. Though a number of guides have been published which offer prevention advice, there is very little original criminological research which connects theory to best practice. This paper demonstrates that Clarke’s situational crime prevention framework provides a mechanism for operatively analysing specific situations to design and implement prevention methods. The study analyses a variety of techniques, based upon a survey and interviews with counter-corruption professionals, to offers insights into their utilisation and effectiveness. To achieve meaningful implementation of the techniques, counter-corruption managers need the delegated power and support of the executive leadership.
